The car was too severely damaged because of a crash at the test. It won't be replaced, it's too late for that.

Qualy 1 was red flagged partway through due to a Lambo crash. Seems the weather is getting worse too.

I've been listening too. If the weather is bad and stays bad, then it seems that Audi may have the poll already. Mind you, I don't think that Bourdais has been in the 908 or had a chance to set a hot lap.

Really? I thought that was the point of a 24 hours race!

Maybe I'm delusional.

henk4, when you are sitting at home all day with nothing to do, pole is the point of the race, and it is damn exciting.

First blood to Peugeot in the battle of the diesels, as they hold the overnight pole position and take all the headlines in tomorrow's papers. After a damp day all day things came alive in the final few laps of the night session, with Stephane Sarrazin stealing P1 from Alan McNish with the final lap of the session. It seems that the Peugeots and Audis are as closely matched on pace as everyone had hoped.

The Barazi Epsilon Zytek 07S/2 leads in LMP2, Christophe Bouchut put his AMR Labre Aston Martin on provisional pole in the dying moments in GT1, and Chris Niarchos took P1 in GT2 in a Scuderia Ecosse Ferrari F430.

Jack have you ever thought of working in automotive journalism?

Your style of writting is very good.

(I'm saying that because of the F1 reports too)

A quick snap shot from Le Mans this evening. It's not one of my better shots, but we will likely never see an Audi in this position again:

5. #3 Audi Sport Team Joest 3:29.736

LMP2

1. #33 Barazi Epsilon 3:44.158
2. #40 Quifel ASM 3:45.838
3. #31 Binnie Motorsports 3:48.173
4. #21 Bruichladdich Radical 3:48.332
5. #32 Barazi Epsilon 3:48.935

3. #64 Corvette Racing 3:52.130
4. #009 Aston Martin Racing 3:52.471
5. #63 Corvette Racing 3:52.657
